A MENOS QUE QUIERAS BAILAR

A MENOS QUE QUIERAS BAILAR (Unless you want to dance) is a collaboration between Canadian artists Rianne Svelnis, Kelly McInnes and Mexican Berlin-based artist Areli Moran. 15 guests are invited to a ceremony that investigates the senses through the bizarre and the familiar; from a cup of tea to the performer's shapeshifting bodies. A MENOS QUE QUIERAS BAILAR brings sweet attention to the awkwardness, the humour and the pleasure in how we are together and to things that can be overlooked in our everyday lives.
